# OpenOffice and delete

I’m doing the annual report on my grant – in openOffice, of course. This is my only time of year when I touch a spreadsheet, and as always I got annoyed by openOffice Calc plopping up a big menu when I press delete. But this year I decided to find the right way to delete:

It’s simple actually:

• Press Delete and you get the menu
• Press Backspace and you just delete!

Apparently, it’s the other way around in Excel. You can of course change the Calc configuration if your brain is stuck.
